Hey Now, I have been trying to post this in RFK 73 with no luck, thought I would put it up here for general discussion:
I love this recording! I am not sure when people went from loving the music to being music critics.
I have a seven year old and always try to impress on him that if someone else has taken the time and effort to create something and then shared it with me freely and I was not impressed to refrain from being unGRATEFUL, the saying is "if I have nothing nice to say, i will say nothing at all." and furthur, "As I judge, so shall I be judged" and more still , "I see you got your list out, say your piece and get out, Yes, I get the gist of it, but it's alright"
Even without Duane it is nice to hear the Allmans in the mix on set three. At times that set has more of a JGB sound and I find it a very nice listen.
I also wanted to comment on WAVE THE FLAG, The way the lyrics push themselves out of the song it kind of reminds me of DAYJOB, (Yes, I was to put it mildly not thrilled to get that song as an encore) but maybe it just hit a little too close to home.
Certainly both songs are attempts to critique the time period they were written in.
How much of a party must this have been? The DEAD and the ALLMAN BROTHERS set up shop in the kingdom
of tricky dickey and exorcise some of those negative federal politics off into outer space.
I have many great memories from RFK, including DYLAN in 86 coming out with the boys during the first set. There was also a show at RFK when a young woman sitting on her man's shoulders center stage took her top off , now that was a set to remember,(perhaps the recording critics would think the band distracted that night-I certainly was) I know the DEAD played very well at RFK and this is certainly their most generous performance in terms of rockin out all night long.

Man, I love that line in that song, but I always thought it was "I see you got your fist out..." (ie, as in for a handout). Is it really 'list?' Suppose D Dodd will tell me.

Good points. Lets get on with the music--so much and so little time. It's okay to quibble and cajole, but no brow beating--agreed?

Thanks; hadn't gotten around to it so much appreciated. Either one works I suppose (list or fist).

Jim,

Wow, the line-up was great.for the AB gig you saw in January 1970.



BB King headlined the FW a week after the Hot Tuna/Allman Brothers/Trinidad Tripoli Steel Band concert in Jan. '71

Hey Willian - not only is it " list out" the first versions HUNTER sang was also " say your peice and piss off"

It allways struck me as a tune written about Jerry and his drug use but can't imagine Hunter would have encouraged that but who knows? There are a few songs like that to me including Mission in the Rain.

Very cool; heard that phrase all the time in Australia ('piss off') in a generally (very) hostile fashion...not so much in the states.

I had the luck of seeing The Allman Brothers play second on the bill, in early 1971 at the Fillmore West/Carousel Ballroom, supporting Hot Tuna.

Opening was the Trinidad Steel Drum Band way before steel drums were common on downtown SF sidewalks.


2nd on the bill.... Duane stole the show. Mesmerising performance..

Sorry Jorma and Jackie boy, you were blown off the world stage (in a friendly sense) that night.

Or better said, perhaps, we in the AUD were blown away.

Next day, my bud who saw the show with me ran out and bought the debut Allman Bros LP.

Midnight Rider ruled the turntable for a full 4 minutes.

Better live though.
